Priority Public Policy Areas

Creativity for All
We promote educational advancement and creative upskilling.

We believe everyone is creative and has the right to share their story, which will create a richer world for all of us. Through education and our creative tools, we can empower students and life-long learners to use digital tools to solve problems, produce innovative projects, communicate ideas and prepare for an increasingly digital world. We know we can’t accomplish our mission alone and that’s why we believe advocacy for creative skills and digital literacy is so important. 

Technology to Transform
We work to address the digital divide.

As one of the world’s most innovative software companies with products that touch billions of people, we must take the impact of our technology as seriously as the development of the technology itself. As we continue to bring transformational technologies to market, we are committed to advancing the responsible use of technology for the good of society. Our policy team advocates for strong policies to improve areas such as Content Authenticity, AI Ethics, Privacy & Security and digital modernization.

Adobe for All
We believe that everyone deserves equal treatment and opportunity.

We are committed to advocating for policies that further equity and advancement, including improving immigration policies, accessibility, diversity and inclusion. Through our Adobe for All mission, we launched the Taking Action Initiative deepen our engagement with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and we advocate for increased federal investment. 

Environment and Sustainability
We practice sustainability in our products, operations and partnerships.

We are committed to reducing our operational footprint, developing digital products that enable our customers and communities to drive positive environmental impact and working with our peers, partners and employees to foster a culture of sustainability. We have demonstrated leadership in energy efficiency and renewable energy practices. We support legislation that would advance climate and clean energy measures, including efforts to address building code standards.
